2 bdrm (or 2.5 bdrm) 1 ba, house on quiet street, wheelchair accessible

This is a 1950s home in a quiet residential neighborhood, available furnished with a no-stair access and a covered parking area. West side location but well situated for getting to u/med area (where we have studied/worked) -- 23 minute bike commute, 12 to 15 minutes by car. Very close to two key bus lines: one between downtown and airport, and another to midtown and u-med district. Walking distance to major grocery, 'first-care' type clinic, health club, restaurants, theater, several parks, and the bike trail system. Only seven minutes by car to airport.

Not full 'ADA compliant' because the doors and spaces are not as ample as today's standards, but suitable for a person with standard wheelchair and a care giver or other family member or friend.

The house is modest but comfortable, with careful renovations throughout. It consists of the primary 2 bedroom dwelling, which is presented in this ad. There is a mother-in-law studio attached (with a separate entrance) which is occupied by a stable, quiet, and well-vetted person. Appliances and finishes are of good quality and in good working order. 840 sq ft on main level, with additional 240 sq ft laundry shared with studio. It is on a very private lot (6 ft enclosing fence all around back, open front) and is adjacent to the railroad greenbelt. Parking available for two cars.

Good credit, employment or stable income, clean background, and rental history or home ownership record is essential. Students may substitute good academic performance and professor recommendations for employment and credit history. We embrace equal housing principles and welcome anyone with excellent track record who will care for the premises and our peaceful neighborhood. Non-smoking (this means non-smoker) house and non-pet house at the moment, but a gentle pet will be considered for additional amount per month. For those who must have high ceilings and the new construction look in general, this is probably not the place for you. Also, we love being near the tracks with the greenbelt and the sound of the trains occasionally rolling by, but if that's something that would disturb you, this house is not a good fit (note however -- track seams have been welded to eliminate the clickity clak and crossings went to 'no-horn' a few years ago, so the sound is quite muted). Rent $1250 for 1 or 2 persons, semi-furnished or furnished. Lease for approximately Sep 17 to May 15. Additional persons, storage area, or pet negotiated on case by case basis. If needed, there is potential to negotiate an additional habitable space equivalent to a tiny bedroom. This ad is to engage proactive initial contacts, please respond with some detail regarding your circumstances, needed arrangement, and contact information. Se habla EspaƱol.
